  • A great place to shop locally...always find a bargain!
  • Looks like they remodeled the store. I was there long ago and it was still old-fashioned and had that yesteryear ambience, which is why I went inside. You walked back in time when you entered the store. Sadly, JCPenney is done as a retailer. Hopefully the Mother Store can continue as a museum and landmark.
  • Great people ! Excellent tour guides ! Knowledgeable of towns attractions . Great experience shopping there
  • The original "Mother Store" of JCPenney. What a pleasant visit and shopping experience. The cashier provided some history and told us of the house a block away that was the home of JC Penney that has been restored and is now a historical site. We enjoyed the house tour provided by the host. Highly recommend!
  • Fantastic! Fun to see the very first j.c. penny.
